Gerald Cox was my best friend in Viet Nam. We had chow together the night
before he was killed. His wife had just had a baby. He wanted to see what the
war was all about. He had volunteered for Nam. His Unit was Company C

time of his death.

“You are Remembered”
Peace and condolence, to the family and friends. “He which hath no stomach, to this fight, let him depart. But we in it, shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!! For he today, that sheds his blood with me, shall always be my brother.” Rest in peace brave soldier, you have not been forgotten. (W.Shakespeare) May God Bless you, for your Sacrifice!!!
